RSI (Back-Room) Meeting – Morning – 7.28.17

 

Captain James T. Kirk

Kirk wakes up in the backroom, due to reasons.

But is anyone else around: when that happens?

Alex Danvers

Not in there. But she and Kara were inside the Inn. Diana was doing Diana things somewhere, so she was not here.

Enma + Others [Multi]

Kirk may be able to hear the conversations of Kestrel and a few members of his team from within the main room. That peculiar mage known as Enma is still sitting nicely and patiently at the table. Wait. Or was he? Nope. Enma was sitting on a barrel, frolicking his feet and legs around, white eyes twinkling at Kirk. If there wasn’t any light in this backroom? All that could be seen of Enma were those two large luminescent orbs staring back at Kirk. “Heeyyyyy-HO!”

Captain James T. Kirk

By the looks of things, Kirk is just now starting to sit up on the cot. Though after his admissions to Diana; there doesn’t seem to be any hindrances to his limbs, either. Sighs. He slides his legs over the side of the cot, so that his feet/shoes can rest upon the floor. Contact lenses: not in his eyes, not anymore. He must have removed them? Yet there appears to be two eyes of someone whom are peering towards him. Door? Red Sun Inn: Backroom Door? Was it locked? If they honestly think, To Keep Him: in here? Anywhere? He’ll bolt. “……………”

Kara Zor-El

The door wasn’t locked. He just ended up in there by mysterious means. Kara and Danvers were at the bar, wondering when he would wake up.

Enma + Others [Multi]

“Mister Quirk. Captain Quirk. Sheesh, you don’t look so good.” Those eyes tell him, and as the room is dark, that’s all Kirk could see are those eyes. Unless of course, the Force gave him the ability to see through the dark like a cat.

Captain James T. Kirk

Pale. Even as he rubs his right hand across his face, “….You can tell me that again”, still trying to get his head together: but it’s a very slow process: why? It’s as if he was put on some sort of dark mind trip. At least this time, he didn’t wake up screaming. Danvers would know about such Events. “Who are you again?”

Enma + Others [Multi]

“You don’t know me yet, sir. But I’m sure we’ll become best of buds soon enough.” A piece of parchment could be heard as Enma pulls a scroll out from somewhere…”You’re Quirk right?” Just to be certain…

Alex Danvers

She knew of them very well. They were horrible. Waking up, screaming. It always scared her. And it hurt, too. So many sleepless nights. His lack of sleep affected her too. His well-being was hers. If he felt bad, she did too.

Captain James T. Kirk

“I sure hope so”, rubbing over each of his tired eyes, “What have I done now?”

 

Enma + Others [Multi]

“Ohoho! The question should be, what haven’t you done?” The lights suddenly turn on with no warning at all, and that scroll Enma pulled out…fell onto the floor…rolling at least 5 feet towards Kirk. As in the scroll is about 5 feet in length, and while it looked comedic considering Enma was a tiny thing at only 3 feet tall? What’s coming next isn’t so funny. “This list right here, is every crime punishable by law in the Wither that you and your crew committed during your stay in our realm.” Oh boy. “I’d name them all, but really that would take too long.”

Kara Zor-El

Kara overheard that, due to her super-hearing. The Wither. She had heard Alex mention it before. Some odd, strange place. And so she looked at Alex. ”The Wither?” Questioning look upon her face.

Captain James T. Kirk

He slapped his right hand to his forehead. Slap! Then dropped that hand down to his lap, “Will we get a prize?”

Enma + Others [Multi]

Enma giggles at that…

Alex Danvers

Questioning look was returned to Kara. ”The With— oh, you heard.” Kirk wasn’t alone then. And well, how to explain it? Odd place indeed. ”While it had nice moments…” Not like the Valkyrie, though. ”It was terrible place. For me, for everyone.” Emotional roller-coaster deluxe. ”I still have nightmares from that place.” The feeling of loss, hurt and everything.

Enma + Others [Multi]

“Depends on your definition of a prize.” His face, obscured by that tall collar of his, can barely contain a mischievous little grin…”Normally we don’t chase outsiders back to their realms for a punishment or two, but for lil-ole-you and your pals? We made an exception. A real special exception. Aaaaaannnnnnd there’s no weaseling your way out if this, bucko.”

Kara Zor-El

”There is someone talking to Kirky about it.” She informed, as if it had to be done. As for the place being outright nightmarish for her sister, well… that was saying something. Still, she was curious about it. And the fact someone was talking about that. To Kirk. ”Come, we need to go there.” And before Alex could say anything, she was pulled along!

Alex Danvers

”Yeah, I kind of gathered.” A faint smile to her sister and then she heard the suggestion and was about to speak against it. ”Kara, we should le—” But nope! These sisters could be stubborn. Dragged along!

Captain James T. Kirk

So? I guess, that’s the prize?” Kirk mutters under his breath. But he isn’t quite ready to stand just yet: still wobbly, even while still sitting upon the cot, “…What if a Dark Force is on this planet and seeking to control and kill: every life form on its surface? Would, The Council of The Wither, allow that? Or? Let it slide?”

Enma + Others [Multi]

Eyes that backroom door for a moment, able to hear Kara dragging Alex towards the room, though Enma doesn’t do squat about it. He just sits nice and proper on that barrel with the scroll in his hand and well…on the floor too. “Welllllllllllllllllllllll not exactly. Hmmmmm. How do I put this…?” He snaps his fingers, and the scroll vanishes in a Poof of fairy dust. “The prize is actually a favor because Prism said you seemed like a favors for favors kind of guy anyway. You and your crewwwwwwwwww head back to the Wither andpledgetofightawaryouinadvertantlycausedorwe’lljustexecuteyouall!” He grinned broadly despite that smile not being visible…”Oh, and I’m not here just as a messenger. I’m here for the long haul, buddy. You and ME, are gonna become the BEST ‘O FRIENDS! As in, I’m sticking around to make sure you stay alive and are ready for your prize waiting back at the Wither.” Nods!

Kara Zor-El

Kara didn’t wait and just opened the door, with Alex in hand. Kara stepped inside firs, even offering a wide smile. She was anything but happy or cheery, though. Today had been a bad day. But still, she tried. Had to be that sunshine for the crew. And Kirk. All of them. ”Sorry for being late!” Kara said and pulled Alex in, before closing the door.

Alex Danvers

Danvers was pulled in and looked at Kirk and the stranger, giving an apologetic smile. ”She… gets excited at times.” Trying to excuse the behavior of her sister. They had not been expected but this was important. Good thing Kara and her behavior could be used as an excuse.

Enma + Others [Multi]

“It’s fiiiiine.” Enma said, waving away the obnoxious behavior of Kara as she practically knocked that door down. Enma liked a bit of boisterous behavior anyway. Things can get a bit dull back at his place of residence.

Captain James T. Kirk

“Tell them what you told me” Each of his fingers, rub each of his temples. Eyes closed. Still yawning and waking up from visions of His New Self. One that’s getting stronger with every hour…..

Enma + Others [Multi]

“But buddy, that’s what I’m here for.” Enma hopped up onto the barrel, hands on his hips. He was quite short in stature, and atop of that his clothes were all strange. The robes were a size too big for him, and looked more like a long skirt the further down they went. His hat sat all crooked and lopsided on his head, but didn’t droop at all. A Pegasus Feather dangled from the brim of said hat, and a crescent moon symbol was strapped to the actual hat part with a leather band. “To make sure you are safe and ready for your prize waiting at the Wither.” Sends a wink at Kirk, but who knows what that means?

Alex Danvers

”What’s this about the Wither?” Danvers asked, even though her attention was mostly on Kirk. Things were going from bad to worse.

Kara Zor-El

”I… actually heard most of… what you said.” Kara cleared her throat. Not trying to be rude but she had heard most of the discussion. Though she felt it would be up to the stranger to explain himself.

Enma + Others [Multi]Today at 3:09 AM

A glance at Kara’s way…”She’s a new addition,” He commented dryly, and then informs Alex in that strangely relaxing yet somehow energetic and adorable voice, “You left a real mess of our realm.” Enma frolics over to Alex with a hop and a skip, and hands her a scroll that was way larger than the previous one, “OOPS! That’s the decree.” He snags it out of her hands, and then gives her the correct scroll…”THIS is a list of all the laws the crew broke while everyone was there.” And if she were to open it? Half of the scroll would fall to the floor, and roll allllllllllllllllllllll the way out towards the opposite side of the room. Every law broken by the crew was on that scroll. “And really, about half of them are punishable by death. We could have just shown up with a group of Judicators to take ya out, but Prism is doing you guys a solid by sparing you…kind of…” KINDA. KINDA as in, they’ll be playing a part in a war that may or may not end up getting them killed.

Captain James T. Kirk

“Prism wants us executed then”, more of a statement. Then turns to Enma, “….Considering what happened in the Clock Tower. I think that he’s got more of a Beef with me and he’s just using these laws to get my crew involved”, Kirk replies, “…You do realize that this is blackmail? Murder is being threatened here?”

Alex Danvers

”And she’s staying.” Danvers stated calmly. They wouldn’t be here if it were not for Kara. Yes, as her older sister she didn’t want her to come here. Because she wanted to protect her from this harsh place. At the same time, she arrived just on time. The ordeals they got up to a while ago? They most likely would never have managed to pull through without her sister. Her eyes watched the odd being and the scroll. One that was snatched and switched almost instantly. As for the scroll, it kind of opened itself and fell to the floor. Danvers had low patience to begin with, so she just tossed it in front of her. ”Tell me what I need to know.” She cared little for the rules. And then he mentioned a solid. By sparing them. That was promising. ”Why are we being spared?” Danvers asked and looked at Kirk as he spoke. It was possible he wanted them executed. At the same time, they were most likely facing death anyway. They had a choice in their poison here, at least. ”I can respect the rules and I admit we did break some of them.” Unintentionally or not, they had. It was not only on Kirk here. Blackmail, yes. But they were blackmailed as it was right now. At least this she could get behind. In the Wither, they had done wrong. Here? With the Imperials, the only crime was existing. And that wasn’t punishable. No right to be.

Kara Zor-El

Indeed. She was the latest addition, though she felt she had pulled her weight so far. And she could carry a lot. A. Lot. Although the Wither was a place she knew little to nothing about: only what Alex had informed her of The Wither. While she was curious about it, this wasn’t directly aimed at her. That didn’t mean she wouldn’t help out, though. Anything that involved the crew was her business too. For the time being, she let Kirk and Danvers do the talking and questioning. The timing was pretty bad. Or perhaps perfect? Maybe it could be used to their advantage?

 

Enma + Others [Multi]

“It isn’t really a threat, Quirk. I said we could have sent Judicators after you. I could have showed up, and ported you all to the prison cells if Prism wanted me to. The thing is though, Prism didn’t’ do either of those things. Instead, he sent me here so that I can tell you, politely that you and your crew are being summoned back to the Wither. And that I won’t be leaving you alone until you go.” He squeezed that last part out because it made him wince to say it like that. “And the Timeless are gone.” In regards to the Clock Tower, the Time-less’s home. “After the battle between Prism and Paradigm, I guess they decided to relocate.” He shrugged. Onto Alex’s questions! “That’s fine with me!” Enma said with a clap, “She wasn’t with the crew when all of this happened anyway. As a new addition, she’s totally void of all punishments. Course, that would change if she showed up and started stirring up stuff…” Tilts his head from side to side. Enma caught the scroll and carefully placed it back into a pouch, “Not much of a reader eh?” He muttered. Why are they being spared? “Why you’re being spared?” He asked with a giggle…”There’s a few reasons.” Enma admits! “First and foremost, let’s just get this out of the way now, you all will be very useful.” Rather forthcoming with that info isn’t he? “And secondly, Prism did admit that things could have gone better, and that none of you were ever informed on any of the laws you broke…” Pause, “And thirdly, he doesn’t actually want to kill you. Though he does think that some action HAS to be taken. If he didn’t take action, and let you all go free, then what kind of leader would that make him? His approval ratings would just PLUMMET! Plummet I say! That would be like me showing up here, and like…Quirk being the leader of this island, and me just breaking all the laws!….” This isn’t turning out to be a very good comparison…”And then Quirk just saying ‘ya know what? You’re alright, my guy.’ Man, people wouldn’t be very happy with that decision eh?”

Alex Danvers

Alex’s eyes went to Kara then. ”Kara follows orders exceptionally well.” And she wasn’t lying. She was probably the one on the crew that followed them the best. Alex was good at it too. Probably a Danvers thing. As for not much of a reader, she was. Just felt the laws meant little if she didn’t know why they were being spared. Since most of them were punishable by death. He even said they would be useful. Left little doubt then. ”Most of us thought it was a luxury resort.” Like Katherine, Rex and Leaner. Fun times! ”He wants something from us.” That was much had been concluded. ”What does Prism want and when?”

Kara Zor-El

Kara couldn’t help but smile with the praise from her sister, even if that was a formal compliment. Still a pretty good one. Had a lot to do with trust. She trusted both Alex and Kirk. More than others, though Kara tried to be as friendly as she could to people. Even ones she didn’t know. ”I’ll go wherever they go.” Kara stated, looking at Kirk and Alex. ”Even if it’s their debt.” She wouldn’t back down from that. As for what this Prism wanted and when, those were good questions. Right now they had a war to prepare and so time was short.

Captain James T. Kirk

Kirk finally starts to get those thoughts together, “So? We weren’t informed of these laws? But now they’re suddenly thrown in our faces”, Kirk replies, “….If we’re going to go through this judicial route? Does this mean, that we can review with legal counsel, Each and Every Law, for future reference?” Oh noes Kirk, “Because if I’m going to report there, under any circumstances? There could be more trumped up charges, simply by appearing”, he says, “…I can’t submit my crew to that type of tyranny, Enma”, he says, “…So bring out that long list of a scroll”, oh noes, “….We got time to listen to every detail”, then onto the, “…Tyranny is using ones power to gain control others by the use of the law, man-power and appropriate followers. Murder is another one, but? That’s just a delay until we get there. For Him. Debts. No Debts. What if we, Choose, to not be a part of this mess?”

Enma + Others [Multi]Today at 3:48 AM

“Yeah…because everyone thinks staying at a bay famous for its cutthroat pirates is a luxury resort.” Enma huffed. The Wither certainly wasn’t a luxury resort, but they know that by now, and Enma wasn’t going to go on about all of that. “Whaaaat? This isn’t tyranny, Quirk. Tyranny is ruling over the land with an iron fist. Tyranny is what Zeta Prime was all about, and the people wouldn’t stand for that then, and they wouldn’t stand for it now.” If Prism was tyrannical there would be crazy amounts of revolts, and simply put Prism wasn’t that type of person. “But if you want to review every single law we can do that, sure. It would actually help everyone out immensely if you did so you don’t show up next time and treat our realm like it’s a vacation spot.” Enma shrugged and brought out the scroll again. “He can’t let it go unpunished though. At least understand that. If someone showed up from another realm and started killing people along with breaking tons of other laws in the process, that person can’t go unpunished, even if they didn’t know it was wrong at the time. Granted, since they genuinely had no idea that it was against the law, much less what the punishments would be if they broke the law, said punishment would be less dramatic. Some of these laws here, punishable by death, or by entrapment within the Void…those punishments were stripped for you and your crew. Like an audit. There were people that still disagreed with that of course, but it is better than the alternative.” “He gave you leniency in that respect. None of you will be sentenced to death.” Pause, “Now. With that being said, here is what Prism suggests. For your punishment, you will assist Jova in an upcoming tribulation against Theta Class Wytherlings.” Pause, “But that’s all he told me, and that’s all that the scroll says.”

Nods affirmatively.

Captain James T. Kirk

“No”, just one simple word, after all of Enmas….

Enma + Others [Multi]

“Okay.” He tucks that scroll away in a pouch. “I can’t leave until you agree though.” Well- he could leavesorta. What he means is, he can’t actually leave Kirk alone until an accord has been struck.

Alex Danvers

Oh, she didn’t mean Carthus Bay or whatever it was called. The city within the walls. The one with the pools and all. She forgot the name of it. The bay was horrid. Jova. She remembered those. But she was starting to think now. They were skilled fighters. Technically speaking, this shouldn’t take long. ”Would Jova be willing to extend the same favor back?” She asked. A counter-offer. ”This isn’t about laws.” She was just guessing, though. ”Prism needs our help. I’m sure he knows we’re good people.” Maybe, maybe not. ”If we agree to this, we want those soldiers to fight our war. It’s only fair since we’ll be spilling blood together.” Danvers was just throwing it out there. ”Or they help us fight our war and we pay our debts by aiding him.” Plus Enma said he would ensure their safety. That was also there. ”And in the meantime, you can help us in our war. Make sure we can pay our debts, if that is something you would rather do.”

Captain James T. Kirk

“Then stick around, because we got business here to fix first” Ouch. “…Just be careful of the storm troopers, the Sith, the 20,000+ armed Inquisitors, their fortified base, and heaven knows what else? Their ships are coming here”, Kirk replies, “…Go ahead, stick around”

Enma + Others [Multi]

“What soldiers?” Enma cocked his head to the side at Alex. “Jova’s soldiers?” Most of which were Nagas and Constructs. Alex may be confused with the Rythian Warriors the crew fought for access to those weapons. Said Warriors are sworn to protect one particular city in that massive desert the crew traveled across using unicorns, and likely weren’t going to be involved in a war outside the Wither. Rythians were bound to that city by spirit and by blood…leaving hasn’t ever been an option to them. “I could ask, but I don’t know if he’ll agree or not. But you’re certainly correct in a roundabout way! Laws are a small part of why I’m here. Prism doesn’t like to get all political, but that’s just a part of being a leader.” Enma sighed as he moonwalks back towards his barrel. “I’m not leaving so no worries there. If I gotta, I’ll stick around until this planet’s star burns out.” He smiled brightly at Kirk. “And then the next one, and the next one, and the next one…and the wait, what?” His eyes widen as he looked back at Kirk, “Twenty thousand armed men and ships? Gee you’re really good at making people mad atcha. Fine. I’ll contact Jova and Prism, see if I can work things out, but I’m not leaving if that’s what you’re trying to slyly convince me to do…you’re thinking…probably…” He rose a brow up in a comedic way, all dramatic, “You think that you’re gonna try and get me to run ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL the way back to Jova back in the Wither to ask him a question, and then you’re gonna pull the wool over lil ole Enma’s eyes aren’tcha? Well I got BAD NEWS for ya BUCKAROOS. I’m here and I’m in gear!” Enma promptly passes out after-wards…
